Ugh! Grain Prep mistake - start over from scratch?
    #25801388 - 02/09/19 01:24 PM (2 years, 23 days ago)

I somehow forgot to put foil on my grain jars during PC. They're going to be too wet now, right? I can't salvage the time spent boiling, draining, and PCing, can I?

What type of lids did you use? What tek did you follow?

I use unmodified plastic lids, no foil needed ime.

I'm following bod's grain prep Tek and using the standard lids that come with the quart jars with a 1/4" hole drilled in them and two layers of tyvek.

I don't bother with foil most times. For sfd and polyfil lids. I don't like tyvek at all

Cool! So maybe I'm okay. I saw that you don't recommend tyvek after I'd bought it and got things going. Next time I'll try polyfill.

Yeah idk about tyvek

If they were mine, I wouldn't throw them out. Give them a good shake when they come out, and if there is water pooling in them after a day or so, I'd say to wet.

You can always post pictures to see what the community has to say.

I'll check them once they cool and post pics if there's moisture.
Thanks!

I NEVER put foil on my jars. I use polyfill. Such a waste of foil imo. If u take the lid off after the pressure drops, they should be hot enough to pretty much instantly dry any moisture that's on the filter. But even if u cover with foil, that's not air tight and pressurized stream should still make its way to the filter. I could be wrong. But I still don't use foil

U can take them out when the pressure equalizes so u can shake the grains to loosen them up while theyre still hot.

Good to know! I'll take the lid off the PC once the pressure is down and hope that gets it dry enough.
